Hawke’s Bay DHB must be held to Account

DHB must be held to Account

Putting Patients First is calling a hui to start a public consultation process on retaining the Hawke’s Bay GPSI diabetes service.

The group is calling a public hui on Monday February 24 at 6.30 pm at the Te Aranga Marae, Flaxmere.

Andy Lowe, speaking for Put Patients First, said we are working in the best interest of patients and want to hear from people with diabetes and their families, and others in the community.

“We are seeking an extension to the GPSI diabetic service contract for three months to allow for a full consultation process, along with an independent review. As part of this we would like a survey of patients who have diabetes in Hawke’s Bay.

The DHB is taking away a crucial health service, a service that is changing patients’ lives, delivering outstanding long-term health outcomes, closing the inequality gap for maori, and saving up to 74% for each patient’s treatment.

“We are putting patients first,”said Mr Lowe.
